Right of Survivorship Texas

By default, a jointly owned property does not include Right of Survivorship Texas. This differs from many other states. The right of survivorship states what happens to property after one of the owners dies.

When Texas property is owned jointly by two or more individuals, it is important to have a survivorship agreement. If you have this agreement and one of the owners of the real property dies, the deceased’s interest in the property will automatically transfer to the surviving owner or owners.

Property co-owners may be spouses or non-spouses.

Good to know: It is important to note that if an owner dies without a Survivorship Agreement, the deceased owner’s interest in the property may pass to the heirs of the deceased owner instead of to the surviving property owner.

Joint Tenants with Right of Survivorship

In most states, the co-owners may simply write “Joint Tenants with Right of Survivorship” or the the abbreviation “JTWROS” on the deed by their names to create a legally binding joint tenancy with right of survivorship. This is not the case in Texas.

In Texas, you must to have a written agreement for right of survivorship or survivorship agreement.

Survivorship Agreement Texas

When a married couple who co-owns property has children from a prior relationship, we strongly advise that both owners sign a Survivorship Agreement Texas.

Without a survivorship agreement, when one spouse dies, his or her interest in the property will pass to his or her estate rather than to the surviving spouse. In order to prevent this from happening, you must have a Survivorship Agreement.
